When 18 Russian engineers headed for Boeing were denied entry at Sea-Tac Airport last fall, the company became part of a growing controversy over using B-1 visas to bring in foreign workers for months-long visits.
The truth might also be that the engineers will not reach on time because the H1B “kicks in” only on October 1, 2012. I doubt Boeing should have to wait this long. The issue of visas for skilled labor is becoming a major issue even for companies such as Boeing.
The Lost Dream (The movie) covers similar issues. Watch it free on youtube. In this case the company tried to do the right thing. Yet they were denied.
